    Patch 3.3.2 this week, Forum Changes

    Patch 3.3.2 this week - Recap
    Patch 3.3.2 should be deployed on live servers this week, the really interesting stuff probably won't be available before the patch day because I need to get my hands on the files to start digging. (Mostly for the Lich King ending cinematic)

    Patch 3.3.2 General Information

    Icecrown Citadel


    MMO-Champion Forums Changes
    If you check the forums regualrly you probably noticed a bunch of changes during the past few days. If you're not a member yet it's probably a very good time to register

    Forums reorganization
    I moved a couple of "useless" forums and merged them with others. We no longer have duplicate Raids & Dungeons or General Discussions forums, the PvP forums have been merged, and a few inactive forums have been deleted. (Guides and News Submissions because the interesting stuff is usually on the "real" forums)

    Moderators!
    28 moderators have been added to the team! I do realize that it might look like they are trying to ban everything out there but the objective is to clean-up the forums and make them a happier place. The goal isn't to ban every non-constructive posts out there but we had to put a stop to a few bad habits.

    So far it looks like the effect on most forums has been very positive and the quality of the discussion here went all the way up (it doesn't mean that I'm happy with everything, send me a private message or a mail if you feel like something is wrong). I'm still looking for moderators for a few boards but keep in mind that 10% of the people who applied were recruited, you really need a fairly serious post history to join the moderators team.

    New forums
    Now that the forums are a little more under control, I can finally add new forums! A new off-topic category has been added.

    HTML Code:
    <table border="0" width="75%" cellspacing="1" cellpadding="5" style="border: 1px solid #000; margin: auto">
	<tr>

		<td colspan="2" class="catbg" height="18">
			[url="http://www.mmo-champion.com/collapse/?c=12;sa=collapse#12"]Off-Topic Forums[/url]
		</td>

	</tr>
	<tr class="windowbg2">
		<td class="windowbg" width="6%" align="center" valign="top">[url="http://www.mmo-champion.com/computer/?action=unread"][img]http://static.mmo-champion.com/mmoc/Themes/mmo2/images/off.gif[/img][/url]</td>
		<td>
			[b][url="http://www.mmo-champion.com/computer/"]Computer[/url][/b]
    
			Anything related to hardware and software here, if you're wondering why your computer turned into a giant fireball this is the place. 
		</td>

	</tr>
	<tr class="windowbg2">
		<td class="windowbg" width="6%" align="center" valign="top">[url="http://www.mmo-champion.com/video-games/?action=unread"][img]http://static.mmo-champion.com/mmoc/Themes/mmo2/images/off.gif[/img][/url]</td>
		<td>

	</tr>

		<td>

			Discuss anything related to music here!
		</td>

	</tr>

    The goal with these new forums is to let you posts about non-related WoW subjects without spamming the current ones. Depending on the success of the new boards I might add a few more of them in the future.

    I would also like to point out that the moderation will be very strict on the new forums until we get things started, if you plan to post here I STRONGLY suggest that you read the rules :

    Hm, hate to be a negative, but I would love to see a way to keep posts in the new forums of the front page.

    Great! Exactly what we needed! I would suggest a forum for complete randomness but seeing as this is open for everyone..... No!

    Hopefully these new forums will get some of the trash out of the General World of Warcraft discussion area.

    Congrats to everyone who was selected to become a moderator! And very nice changes, I can't wait for the Lich King ending cinematic!

    Sounds great, though the one thread per movie/tv show/video game concerns me a bit, as popular threads could easily get crowded.

    Edit: Also, I'm sure CoD fans wouldn't like to have their thread for MW2 stuck as being some guy's desire to have a colored name.

    Looking forward to the new DPS ring, Toravon, the new wing in Icecrown Citadel. But at the most I am looking forward to the Lich King encounter which involves the end of the expansion and a cutscene! 8)

    Nice changes for the 5 man heroics to speed them up too.

    Awesome job with the forum. I found the duplicates to be quite redundant myself. Also glad to hear about the number of moderators recruited. I found the forum to be quite full of garbage myself, which is sort of the reason I don't post here too often. Not to say there aren't any intellectuals, helpful people, or simply people with good attitudes... I just feel the ratio was a bit off. :P

    Cheers!
